If you haven’t noticed, EA and Respawn Entertainment’s upcoming Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order is one of the most anticipated Star Wars games we’ve seen in quite a while. At the same time, EA’s recent questionable history with games like Star Wars: Battlefront 2 and Anthem has left fans with little hope in anything that the publisher has a hand in.
I agree that EA has done enough to let us down in the recent past, but I still have hope that Fallen Order will be different. Here’s why.
Almost everything we’ve seen on Fallen Order so far has revolved around cinematic presentation. EA and Respawn have made it abundantly clear that this game will be a heavily story-driven experience. From my perspective, that doesn’t really leave them room for a pay-wall of any kind.
Also, EA knows they’ve been doing the community wrong. Their actions tend to appear motivated by greed. However, surely this time they’ll just give us a full game, even if it means some cosmetic items need to be purchased. If they mess up again, they’re likely to have the door shut on them completely. I know mine will be shut.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order releases on November 15, 2019.
What do you think? Do you think EA will botch this one? Let me know in the comments.
